MFB crews were called to a pawfully tricky predicament in Collingwood on Tuesday morning.

Four firefighters responded to a Dight Street property after the occupant reported their cat crying in the roof cavity just after 10:15am.

MFB crews were not kitten around, and arrived on scene quickly.

They began cutting away part of the ceiling, where they found the cat had given birth to a litter of four kittens.

Firefighters prevented cat-astrophe and  removed the kittens, who were all in purr-fect health, and feline fine.

The cat’s owner said the kittens will be named after the firefighters who rescued them.
